Hit bull, win steak. Much more than a slab of beef will be at stake when the ACC Baseball Championship returns to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park May 22 – 27. Don that broken-in ball cap, grab a dog and a Bull Durham brew, and support your men’s college team.
The 2018 championship tournament marks the second year under a new format: 12 teams compete in round-robin pool play leading to a four-team, single-elimination bracket to determine league champions. And this year’s pool of players once again promise high-caliber competition. ACC baseball championships regularly feature some of the nation’s highest-ranked teams and players. Every season for the last nine years, the ACC has had at least seven teams earn bids to the NCAA Championship; and leading all conferences in 2017, the ACC boasted 20 All-Americans and 75 players that went on to the MLB draft. No belly-itchers or scatchers here, fans. –Katherine Poole
